Mission Briefing


Unyielding Quality

Today’s Yeilding Wine 2012 Russian River Valley Pinot Noir is a textbook Russian River Valley Pinot Noir from two of the most sought-after vineyard sources in the Russian River Valley. Fruit from the Baccigalupi and El Diablo vineyards produce some of the finest and most prized in the Russian River Valley.

This wine has a lovely texture on the palate, with fruits that lead to an extended and very flavor-filled finish. Flavors of kola, cocoa and earth juxtapose the rich, dark fruits to give the wine a dark but balanced appeal.

The El Diablo fruit contributes to the rich, dark color of the wine while the Baccigalupi fruit gives the wine a brightness that makes it an excellent food companion.

Enjoy this very highly recommended Pinot with fowl or pork dishes - or all on its own.

Tasting Profile


A rustic, scarlet red at the very edge of the glass encircles a deep, slightly opaque ruby at the heart of the glass.


Elegantly subdued on the nose, with fresh cherry and strawberry balanced against cherry cola, baker’s chocolate, herbal black tea, and orange zest.


An expressive, well balanced, and absolutely fantastic on the palate, this wine is everything you’d want in a Russian River Valley Pinot. Leading with plenty of candied cherry and sweet plum, the wine is balanced out by more complex flavors of dark chocolate, unsweetened cola, orange oil, and a lovely minerality.


A lovely texture, without being overwhelming, the boldness of the fruit flavors are balanced by a wonderful acidity at the finish, highlighted by the subtle minerality that sings through to the very end.


A roast pork loin, rubbed with fresh garlic and rosemary, served with the pan juices drizzled on top.

What the Winery Says

This 100% Pinot Noir has fruit sourced from the Bacigalupi and El Diablo Vineyards. Deep ruby in color, with aromas of ripe cherry, strawberry and cardomom, with hints of darker, baked cherries. The wine has a silky mouthfeel, with bing cherry and orange zest on the front of the palate, leading to deeper, earthy flavors and a subtle minerality, with just a touch of dry chocolate cola, at the finish.

About the Winery

Yeilding Wine was a twenty year long dream brought to life by Sig and Willow Yeilding in 2006. Sig had worked in a winery in Santa Cruz while attending the UC, and after 20 years in the music industry, he converted his shop into a winery. The winery is perched on top of a ridge at 3500 feet overlooking Noble Butte and King’s Peak. The Yeildings source their fruit from prestigious vineyards in Sonoma and Mendocino Counties, including Alder Springs Vineyard, Bacigalupi/Russian River Valley, and Pine Mountain. The goal of Yeilding Wine is to treat the fruit as gently as possible. The entire process is done by hand- from the picking to the bottling. In this way we are enhancing the essence of the grapes and the unique characteristics of the vineyard.
